People, Pictures and News From the Past

Where is Brunswick, Maine, USA? 

Brunswick, Cumberland, Maine, USA
Settled in 1628 and known by its Indian name “Pejepscot” for over 100 years afterward, the Town of Brunswick was officially incorporated in 1739 when Maine was still part of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Historians often note that Maine Street is one of the Town’s most distinctive features, laid out by the “Pejepscot Proprietors” in 1717 at a width of 12 rods (198 feet) so that travelers between Fort Pejepscot on the Androscoggin River and Maquoit Bay would always be nearly 100 feet from the woods on each side, providing protection from ambush.www.brunswickme.org/ welcome/ history/
